Handmade in Chajul, Quiche Guatemala, this top will add a geometric and flashy style to your wardrobe. Wear it with denim or linen pants for a casual picnic day in the sun, or spice it up with a skirt and boots for a fun night out on the town! Either way you wear it, heads will turn towards your boho-stylish self. 

This pre-loved top was hand-woven on a back-strap loom with cotton in a Eggplant Purple base. Please note that this top is a lot heavier than our traditional Chajul tops that are super soft and light. This top is 100% cotton.

Iconography: This stunning top has a woven-embroidered design of double-headed eagles in the front and back. The double headed eagle in Maya mythology represents the Great God with two faces, one looking to good and the other to evil, or to heaven and earth. It is a common figure of protection in the Mayan culture. Great piece to add to your wardrobe or use as an art-wall hanging. Great piece to add to your ethical wardrobe!
